She wrote it up the other day.
Our route took us through some incredible scenery (is there any other kind in the Sierra?), including a night of cowboy camping at Precipice Lake, the site of one of my favorite Ansel Adams photographs. It just so happened that the night coincided with the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, making for one memorable night.
Her pictures are awesome.
Hey! That’s my trip! 🙂
I was at Precipice on August 6, though we didn’t stay overnight – just passed by on our way from Hamilton Lake to the old cabin in Big Arroyo before heading on to Moraine Lake, dropping into the Kern, and then climbing out to exit over Whitney.
Precipice Lake is a stunning place. The first time I was there – 30 years ago – I did not realize that the famous Ansel Adams photograph had come from this lake… until I topped the small saddle at the outlet of the lake and there it was in front of me. Astonishing!
I haven’t posted “the story” of the trip on either of my blogs yet, but I have posted some photographs at my photography site, including some Precipice Lake images:
Submerged Boulders, Precipice Lake
… and others from elsewhere on the trip. (We followed the “High Sierra Trail” from Crescent Meadow to Whitney Portal.)
